Video: Namati Kenya Honored with the 2021 Global Pluralism Award

On February 23, 2022, the Global Centre for Pluralism, an international research and education centre located in Ottawa, Canada, announced the three winners of their 2021 Global Pluralism Award. We are pleased to share that Namati Kenya’s citizenship program was a recipient of this honor, alongside Hand in Hand: Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel and Puja Kapai, a social justice advocate working in Hong Kong.

According to the Centre’s website, the award is presented once every two years to individuals, organizations, governments and businesses that demonstrate “remarkable and sustained achievements… [in] building more inclusive societies in which human diversity is protected.”

Namati Kenya’s citizenship program equips historically excluded communities to overcome a discriminatory system and secure the national identity documents they need to access basic services like education and healthcare.  This short video, produced by Global Centre for Pluralism, shows how community paralegals are working with members of these communities to obtain legal identity documents as well as reform the unjust system.
